Will I be sent a form automatically or do I have to request one?
Self Assessment Tax Return forms are issued after the end of the tax year – which is 5th April – and cover the previous 12 months. You will receive one as standard if you have registered as self employed, which you should have done when you set up the business. If you do not receive one for any reason, then don’t think you’ve ‘got away with’ and don’t have to complete one. HMRC will catch up with you eventually, so you might just as well ask them to send you one. It’s your responsibility to do so.
